General

To communicate with the Flash Controller you need a device which is captable of the Xbox 360's SPI Protocol. There are ready-to-use devices you can buy or, if you aren't afraid of soldering your own hardware, DIY homebrew devices. Basicly: Get the device programmed (if needed) and solder it according to the Diagram to your Xbox's mainboard - you can start reading/writing to your NAND after installing the needed drivers.

DIY / Homebrew

LPT SPI Programmer

This type of programmer isn't really recommended as it's awfully slow and can probably cause high failure rates.
